Twins plead not guilty to animal cruelty charges

December 19, 2009

Twin brothers Tremayne and Travers Johnson pleaded not guilty Friday to animal cruelty charges. The 17-year-olds, charged as adults, are accused of setting a pit bull puppy on fire in May. The animal, named Phoenix by rescue workers, was euthanized because of its injuries. The teens are being held without bail at the Baltimore City Detention Center. They are also charged with gun and drug possession in a separate case. Trial dates have been set for March and February, respectively.
